Smile Anybody on here run/race RC cars/trucks?

Just wondering if anybody on here races or bashes RC cars or trucks? I've got a 1:10 scale traxxas slash 4x4 modded out with aftermarket shocks and upgraded SCT motor and lipo battery system. I've never raced in an organized race, but I've practiced a lot on a race track near Houston. These things are a blast! Mine right now will do around 45+ mph, but the most impressive thing is how quick it can get to that speed.

Re: Anybody on here run/race RC cars/trucks?

I had a few electric drift cars and still have one HPI sprint 2 drift. Things a blast, but I don't have anyone to race against so it never gets used. Maybe when my kid gets bigger I'll be able to have some fun with it. Beyond that I used to have a few nitro cars and buggies. They were alot of fun, but such a pain in the rear trying to keep em running right. Electric only from now on for me.

Yeah electric is the way to go for sure. When I go to the track all the nitro guys spend 80% of their time working on their cars.

I picked up a Ofna Hyper10SC Nitro last month. Just finished the break in, so I hope to bash it around now. Can't replicate the smell or sound of nitro with electric!

Re: Anybody on here run/race RC cars/trucks?

I have a Jato 3.3 that I keep blowing tranny's up in and sheering gears, that 2nd gear is a beast though and will just Walk a wheelie to clocked 68 then sit it down and go, few mods done to it;-)

Just bought my son a Rustler - no mods done to it yet so does a solid 30 on the gun, but with brushless upgrade and some li-po can get it in the 60 range, just letting him get good at driving it right now.

Re: Anybody on here run/race RC cars/trucks?

Ive been in rc of some form or another for about 11 years. started with nitro and a savage. Ive owned a handfull of savages, a revo, rustler, rc10, couple of buggys, on road cars, etc. Ive had crawlers, boats, and i won a summit on a raffle.

I went electric and gas a few years ago. right now i have a pede, a slash 4x4, a couple of little helis, and a baja 5B.

Re: Anybody on here run/race RC cars/trucks?

I will admit that I've never owned a nitro. Maybe I need to try it out before forming an opinion. Lol. I've got a buddy that wants to sell me his Redcat nitro buggy for like $20. Think I might take him up on the offer and see what it's all about. I raced motocross for years and eventually went from a YZ250 to a YZ450F. After going to the 4stroke I really missed the smell of the 2stroke!! LoL

the baja is 5th scale. 26cc 2 stroke engine.

i like the slash a lot. it is brushless and 4x4 but i only have 2s packs right now. need to pick up some 3s packs to really open it up.

I took it to the last beach meet we had. Had a blast and everyone on the beach was lined up watching me jump on a sand ramp the guys built. I was jumping over Karims head.

here is a shot so you can see the size. this isnt me or my rig, just a pic off google
